I have an acer aspire one and the keypad is not working its typing the wrong letters any suggestions why. It is not a year old yet


This is either a keyboard or setting problem. If the operating system is told the keyboard is a different type or the wrong location (language) you get weird results. Can even be a stuck key or even a function setting. Laptops use the FN-F7 key (usually) to turn on the numeric pad that is in the keyboard. That will also give you strange results.

If the keyboard doesn't have a stuck key and actually is the problem then it can only be replaced.

If its just a setting then you need to look under control panel for the keybaord setup and make sure it is set to the correct location language and type. A standard laptop keyboard is a 84 key and I believe the ones with number pads are 101 key.

When I turn my computer on, I get a loud alarm


I had the same problem - almost took it apart and tried to get to the HD, but then realized it was a stuck key.
Try tapping the keyboard, maybe one key at a time, just to be sure that there isn't a key that the computer is registering as pressed. Then try rebooting.
Hope that helps!

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

I restarted my computer and keyboard not working


Hello,

It sounds like you might have accidentally turned on the laptop number lock. I am assuming you are seeing that characters are being typed, but the password is not accepted. If this is the case, try turning off the num lock by pressing the FN key (usually found by on the lower left by the CTRL and/or ALT keys).

If this doesn't work, trying entering the BIOS when starting the computer (usually by pressing F2 repeatedly when you see the DELL logo). In the BIOS look for an option for the numlock and turn it off.

Last shot - I have seen a few times where num lock is remembered when an external keyboard is used and then stays enabled on the laptop after it is disconnected. If you used a plugged in keyboard and/or use a docking station, you may want to try plugging in the keyboard again, disable NumLock (above the number pad on the right) and then shut down. Remove the external keyboard and I suspect the laptop won't have this issue.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Sticky keyboard


You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.
